Rosalind Kerry from Lepra visted St Killian’s College on Monday to accept a cheque for £2,358 for her charity.
With a history spanning almost 90 years, volunteers with Lepra currently work on the frontline in India and Bangladesh to treat, educate, rehabilitate and give a voice to people affected by disease, poverty and prejudice.
Ms Kerry spoke to Year 8 Assembly on Monday and gave a rundown of the uses that the £2,358 would be put to. She thanked the Year 8s and the St Killian’s staff for their generosity and for their continued good work for Lepra.
